Does anyone think Steam will be featured heavily in the "Back to the Mac" keynote?

    I think that this is a distinct possiblity because of two things:
    1. 10.6.5 is supposed to bring a host of 3D rendering improvements
    2. VALVe already made a statement about 10.6.5 and it's improvements.

    This would be AWESOME.

    Hopefully not, I want new, innovative features of 10.7; not 20 minute demos of video games.

    Agreed, game playing is not a priority for me, and I prefer what apple will do, not how many game developers are writing for the mac.

    God I hope not.

    Focusing on that would be unbelievably boring. Where is the excitement in "we can play games too" ?

    Since Steam is not made by Apple, I would put the possibility of Steve spending any of his keynote time talking about it at 0%.

    A casual mention? Perhaps. Featured "heavily"? Nope.

    I know I sound like an echo, but no, I don't think Steam will come up. It will more than likely be a preview of 10.7.

    Seriously doubt it, if they did mention gaming it's doubtful they'd use the limited time they had to talk much about something they haven't developed themselves.

    iPods are targeted to people that play games though. Macs are targeted for productive work and less about gaming.
